This study aims to present ideas on the reconfiguration of food supply and distribution in Mexico based on a consolidation of open economy processes. The assumption is that to begin with the impacts of the aperture model of food supply occur in the country's metropolitan zones, as these have greater consumer density and more income regularity, together with dominant interests, cultural sponsors and nutritional habits. The metropolises are axes of supply organization, implying structuring systems to adjust a model of demand according to the heterogeneous interests of their consumers. Food supply in Mexico is therefore immersed in a new transition that follows the transformations in consumption in the present economic development model.

This work analyzes factors relevant to the configuration of the food distribution system in Mexico, where corporate leadership is dominant. It identifies the causes and effects of the expansion of a new, more organized and more competitive business scheme for food distribution as compared to the traditional channels that operated before the advent of this hegemony. The importance of this process and its relation to commercial opening is reflected in a set of territorial expansion strategies through multiple operating modes and establishment sizes to dominate a significant amount of food consumption located mainly in Mexican cities. © 2014 Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México.
